2019 Beard, Shorts & Sandals Season to restart on Thursday 20th June

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that after a prolonged period of cold and wet weather the suspension of the 2019 Beard, Shorts and Sandals Season which took place om June 10th will be lifted on June 20th.

The campaigners say that the length of the suspension is unprecedented in recent times but was necessary given the extreme weather.

The BLF has relaxed guidelines for the 2019 season and brought in a new framework governing types of footwear and the length of shorts but not on the controversial issue of socks after a People’s Vote:

1] Shorts may be half length (to the knee) or three-quarter length-‘culottes’. The length of shorts is particularly important as climate change may mean that unprotected legs get sunburnt.

2] Footwear should be casual. There is a considerable range of sandal type footwear now available. Some leave parts of the feet and toes open to public view, while some does not. The BLF is not prescriptive about the matter.

3] Socks should generally not be worn following a People’s Vote on the issue

4] There is no prescription or definition on what type of beard may be worn, or how this may match with the shorts and sandals. This is left up to the individual.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, the Beard Liberation Front has a duty of care towards its supporters and looking at the weather forecast it was clearly not the weather for shorts and sandals, although beards were still fine. For that reason we took the difficult decision to suspend the 2019 Beard, Shorts and Sandals Season but are pleased that we are able to lift it on June 20th
